Most of the people in my generation growing up in Asia have a live-in nanny or take-out is merely a block away. Also eating out is a social thing with friends and families. And traditionally, Asian parents didn’t encourage their children to learn how to cook, because in their mind it is “wasting time,”—kids should focus on studying and school. Especially for boys, messing around in the kitchen was definitely a no when I was growing up. (Clearly that’s an old notion—nowadays, cooking is the enhanced value proposition for men because sexier men cook.)
